Posted by Flyhouse on Jul 22, 2016 10:30:00 AM

The team at Mountain Productions wrote a feature on Chicago Flyhouse's Head Trainer and Cruise Ship Division Manager, Ed Leahy. He will be the new rigging trainer at Mountain Production's 32nd CM Hoist School event.

Ed has been an integral part of Flyhouse's rigging inspection program Safer Venue. Each month, Ed coordinates or is part of three to four different rigging inspections at different venues to ensure their rigging systems are safe and all staff using the rigging equipment receive the proper training.

Throughout the feature, Ed talks about the Safer Venue program, what brought him into the rigging business, and what he sees as the future for those in the business. To read the full feature, check out Mountain Production's blog
